First and foremost, thank you to our fabulous hostess with the most-est, Andrea, for having us all over for our Holiday Book Party! Our cookie exchange was delicious and our White Elephant Book Swap was surprisingly successful! Can’t wait to do that again next year! We didn’t have enough people finish In the Heart of the Sea to make a movie date (but those who finished it loved it! All thumbs up!), but I know some people made movie dates of their own so hopefully those who want can make it out to watch.
When it came time to pick our next title Holly offered up Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus (buy it here) and I may, or may not (definitely may), have gotten super excited because it is my all-time favorite read. Hopefully I didn’t oversell it because I think my reaction hijacked the book vote! It did end up sparking an interesting conversation about everyone’s favorite titles, which are listed below for future reference! I think we also forgot to pick a theme for the next read so let’s just call it Anything Goes!
Next book club meet up is scheduled for Sunday January 31st at 11:00 am, at my (Diana’s) house. I will email the address. Just remember to bring a title/summary for the next read and a drink or brunch item (fruit salad, cheese & crackers, etc.). I will prepare a warm egg dish and some snacks as well so I’m sure there will be plenty of food… I’m pretty sure having enough food has never been a struggle for us!
Also, dress code is black and white! Start reading soon and you’ll understand 🙂 Until next time, gals, happy reading, happy holidays, and a happy happy happy new year!
